The sound quality of this recording is great. I have no complaints at all about it.
Jigsaw > Story > AC2B is a good way to start the show. Jigsaw > Story is pretty solid throughout. It's nothing incredible, but the last few minutes of the Jigsaw as tracked is pretty good. The AC2B is so, so good. Super uplifting, joyous, happy Biscuits in the 2nd jam. If you're into major key jams, this AC2B is for you.
Resurrection > Sound 1 > Earth is good. Resurrection has a funky little jam out of it, not bad for a debut. Sound 1 gets a great outro jam, and if I didn't like the AC2B so much, I would say this is the jam of the night. Also very good. After they start heading back to Jigsaw, however, it gets pretty boring for a bit.
Paint The Day is a standalone, and I don't particularly care for the song, so I don't have much more to say about it.
Dribble > Astro is great, and really shows the big difference between Sammy's drumming vs. Allen. I'm a huge fan of Allen, but it's rare these days that we hear a jam start and stop, pull back and push forward as much as both of these jams. The jam out of Dribble is built extremely well. The Astronaut jam gets WAY out there for a bit, in an awesome way.
Fiddler is always a treat, though there's nothing in this one that you haven't heard in every other Fiddler.
Spacebird was kind of a poor way to end this show, and the jam is pretty boring throughout. They at least nailed the composition, but I feel like a shorter song that didn't feel so drawn out would have been a better choice.
This show is not bad, and has a couple very good jams (AC2B, Sound One, and Astronaut).
